BracesInvisalign® can help whether your correcting extensive adjustments or minor improvements. Invisalign® corrects the same orthodontic problems as metal braces. Many patients perfer Invisalign® to traditional braces as the tray is removable and can not be easily seen.
OrthodonticsTreatment consists of a series of invisible trays all aligners, which are changed every several weeks with an office visit. Life with Invisalign® aligning trays may take several weeks to get used to. The trays should be worn constanly, except when eating and drinking. It is important to remove the trays when consuming food or drink because food can become trapped between the tray and the teeth causing decay. There is no doubt that Invsalign aligning trays have revolutionized orthodontics. Invisalign® is renowned for being both comfortable and effective.

Dental ImplantsAll on 4 is the removal of all teeth, placement of 4 implants, and a full row of prosthetic teeth that is attached to the implants. This prosthesis can only be removed by a dentist.
Restorative Dentistry, fillings, and crowns to restorative dentistry, including dentures, implants, and root canals. Whether your dental needs are cosmetic or preventative, we will provide you with personalized dental care for the entire family.
FillingsA COMPOSITE (white) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling. T here are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. You and your dentist can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth. Composite fillings, along with silver amalgam fillings, are the most widely used today. Because composite fillings are tooth colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth.
VeneersVENEERS are a great alternative for patients wanting a uniform, white beautiful smile. You will no longer hide your smile due to misshappen, crooked, chipped or severely stained teeth. With just two appointments you can correct your teeth's imerfections and have a more confident attactive smile.
CrownsA CROWN (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Root Canal TreatmentRoot canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function.
DenturesDENTURE is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.
Tooth WhiteningTeeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.

Teeth CleaningOnce your periodontal treatment has been completed, your dentist and dental hygienist will recommend that you have regular maintenance cleanings ( periodontal cleanings ), usually four times a year. At these cleaning appointments, the pocket depths will be carefully checked to ensure that they are healthy. Plaque and calculus that is difficult for you to remove on a daily basis will be removed from above and below the gum line.
Fluoride TreatmentPrevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.
Dental SealantsAs a practice, we are true believers that preventive care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “ dental health care ” vs. “ disease care ”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
Oral Cancer ScreeningThe victims of oral cancer aren't just smokers and tobacco users! Though these habits remain major factors, the largest percentage of oral cancer patients are young, healthy, nonsmoking indiviuals that are connected to the HPV virus. We can't stop the spread of the virus, so the best chance we have for saving lives is through early detection and public awaerness. Our office will be offering complimentary screenings until August 31st. We encourage you to call and schedule an appointment. With your participation, we are dedicated to do our part in reducing the death rate from this disease.
Dental ExaminationPeriodontal disease is diagnosed by your dentist or dental hygienist during a periodontal examination. This type of exam should always be part of your regular dental check-up.
X-raysDental x-rays produce a low level of radiation and are considered safe. Dentists take necessary precautions to limit the patient’s exposure to radiation when taking dental x-rays. These precautions include using lead apron shields to protect the body and using modern, fast film that cuts down the exposure time of each x-ray.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Flap SurgeryPocket elimination surgery – Pocket elimination surgery (also known as flap surgery) is a surgical treatment which can be performed to reduce the pocket size between the teeth and gums. Surgery on the jawbone is another option which serves to eliminate indentations in the bone which foster the colonization of bacteria.
Periodontal SurgeryIf the pockets do not heal after scaling and root planing, periodontal surgery may be needed to reduce pocket depths, making teeth easier to clean. Your dentist may also recommend that you see a Periodontist (specialist of the gums and supporting bone).
